Villa Joe Umalas is located in an area known for its rice terraces and serene ambience in the semi-rural village of Umalas, Villa Joe is a well-designed three bedroom retreat that is perfect escape for seasoned travellers. Villa Joe is removed from the upbeat pace of mainstream tourism yet still suitably distanced from the cosmopolitan area of Seminyak for nights of wining, dining and after dark entertainment. As part of a family owned complex, Villa Joe Umalas is subject to around the clock security and there is also plenty of parking for rented vehicles. The villa is enveloped by a tropical garden filled with indigenous plants and green lawn. It is accessed via a pair of timber doors in a style that cocoons the villa from the outside world.
The garden features a traditionally thatched lounging pavilion for shaded relaxation. It is a romantic spot to cuddle up with a loved one, partake in a well-deserved afternoon sleep or catch up with some reading. Alternatively, Wi-Fi access extends to the pavilion for guests needing to check in with the office or connect with those back at home. A generous sized swimming pool is surrounded by reclining sun-loungers for leisurely hours spent soaking up the sun.
Architecturally, Villa Joe Umalas is a modern residence yet there are certain elements that have drawn inspiration from the timeless principles of Balinese design. The thatched rooftop and open living concept is typical of village homes across the island. The integrated dining and kitchen environment has been created for entertaining and social evenings of good food, wine and conversation. A long timber table is surrounded by high-backed chairs with vibrant red cushions while the gourmet kitchen is filled with branded appliances and stylish tableware.
The aesthetic décor throughout Villa Joe is distinctly oriental and the walls are adorned with a collection of classic Chinese prints. Furnishings in daring shades of black and red catch the eye from afar. There are paper lanterns, bold textiles and artistic objects that harmoniously come together to give this villa a charisma of its very own. The lounge area continues the oriental theme with comfortable sofas in polished dark timber and contrasting red cushions. For home entertainment there is also a large screen plasma television with satellite channels and a high-tech DVD/music system.
There are two bedroom suites located downstairs facing the pool. Each features its own unique décor yet they are similar in terms of having a deluxe sized canopied bed and a quiet sitting area to take pleasure in some quiet time alone. Both bedrooms come complete with a spa styled en-suite bathroom. Bathing indulgence is enhanced by a terrazzo tub that accommodates two as well as a semi-outdoor shower.
The third bedroom is an upstairs sanctuary that is relatively secluded. It is ideal for parents looking for their own piece of paradise at the end of the day. There is a small foyer outside the bedroom and glass doors slide open to unveil an elegantly appointed setting with a canopied bed fitted with white linen. It is a room that promises nights of intimacy followed by restful slumber. The en-suite bathroom is equally as luxurious with its giant terrazzo bathtub for a replenishing soak at the end of each day.
Taking holiday comfort to a whole new level, Villa Joe is all about living life to the fullest whilst in Bali. The villa comes fully staffed by a professional team that includes a Resident Manager, Housekeeper and Pool/Garden Attendant as well as Security Guards. Villa Joe also offers the culinary services of a personal Chef to take of grocery shopping and menu planning featuring innovative world cuisine.
